    Where are all of these new grads going to work? It's tough out there and the market for new grads is awful. Nursing schools continue to churn them out with false promises of how they can work anywhere they want. In my area the hospitals would have open houses and there would be 300 students there for 15-20 positions. It was def a reality check and very frustrating to find out that hospitals weren't as excited to hire us as we thought they would be.

    Oddly, the higher the tuition, the more the school preaches about the dire impending nursing shortage...go figure lol

    According to a very prestigious nursing school in NYC, that charges about 1500 bucks per credit hour, the shortage is going to be crippling, "soon"

    How much do you want to bet that these are all diploma mills and not legit, accredited nursing programs?

    Well it wasn't that long ago student's were poking each others eyes out to get into nursing school. Do you blame them for adapting to students demands?

    I'm assuming it'll be a picture of a gate on Santa Monica beach or something.... Ok yes this IS tongue in cheek.

    It's all about money. Colleges don't care about the nursing shortage. They are bringing students in and pumping them out so fast. They fill their heads with false hope that the nursing shortage will soon be over. How many times have we heard that??? Schools are getting richer, students are stuck with loans/debt that they can't pay because they don't have a job, and many people are getting frustrated with the 500+ applications for 20 positions frenzy! It's really sad.
